Welcome to our website and hopefully, here you will find all the information you need about St. Margaret's Church, Great Barr.
Update - Thursday 25 June 2020:
The Government revised its rules on 15 June 2020 to allow churches to be open for “Private/Individual Prayer”, therefore, St Margaret’s Church will be open on Sunday mornings between 11.00 am and 12.00 noon and on Thursday mornings between 10.00 am and 11.00 am. There is still NO SERVICE but it gives people a chance to be in church, just to pop in or for a longer period of time.
If you wish to attend the church for private prayer at another time, then please contact the Parish Office (details below) to arrange so that someone can let you in.
We are allowed to have Funeral Services in Church as well as Burials in the Churchyard but only attended by immediate family - spouse, children & other close family up to a total of 12-15 people who then self-distance (2m / 6ft 6in).
Although the Government have said weddings can now take place, we are waiting for Church of England confirmation and guidance as to numbers, etc. This also applies to Baptisms.
